I made my first quilt with the help of my friend Stephanie. I usually sew clothes so quilting was completely new for me. So many lines and perfect boxes and every mistakes shows! What a change! Check out some of the seams on my other sewing projects. It’s far from perfect. But with Stephanie’s help I was able to make a very cute little quilt.
I’m glad she was there to help though! I was so ready to cut each individual rectangle and then sew them together. It never accrued to me to make large strips, sew them together, and then cut them. (Quilting newbie! How embarrassing!)
Stephanie and I made such a great team; she was ironing while I was sewing. It made for a super fun afternoon together. Sometimes I question my age when I say things like that. 65 year old women enjoy quiet afternoons quilting with friends, not 23 year olds. To combat that feeling of being old, I do something irresponsible and crazy like leaving the hot glue gun on when I leave the house. YOLO.
